Vitality in market to replace misutaaa; target Spinx - Report

After a disappointing early string of results, the French-Danish combine are considering making moves in the off-season.

Vitality are exploring changes to their roster after their first six months as an international lineup has failed to bear fruit, with 1pv.fr reporting that Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier is likely on the chopping block as the French organization eye up ENCE's Israeli superstar Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi.

Since pivoting to an English-speaking international roster at the start of the year, Vitality have struggled to make it deep in tournaments. Although trophies weren't expected out of the gate, the additions of Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen, Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif, and Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen brought an expectation of better results than the team have had.

misutaaa may be on the way out of Vitality

After making a splash at the BLAST Premier Spring Groups to kick off the year, Vitality faltered at IEM Katowice, ESL Pro League Season 15, PGL Major Antwerp, and IEM Dallas, exiting in the group stage of all four events. Their only deep run came at the BLAST Premier Spring Final, where they managed a runner-up finish, but what followed was another early exit from IEM Cologne, marking a dismal end to the first half of the season for the international roster.

Throughout the last six months, members of the team have been vocal regarding issues with communication and their struggle to mesh the styles of the Danish and French players, and it has seemingly come to a head as the tournament break gets underway as the team are now reportedly exploring replacements for misutaaa.

zonic on coaching an international team: "Teamplay and the tactical aspects are very limited"

According to 1pv.fr, Spinx is one of Vitality's primary targets, although they are exploring other options as well as a transfer from ENCE may prove difficult. The 21-year-old Israeli rifler has turned heads over the last six months, helping ENCE briefly climb to the No. 2 spot in the world rankings by averaging a 1.17 rating on LAN since the start of the year.

Though he is not playing star roles, misutaaa has struggled to perform since Vitality transitioned to an international lineup, his LAN rating dropping from 1.01 in 2021 to 0.93 in 2022. With one month until tournament play starts again, the Frenchmen may be on the way out as Vitality feel out the market in the off-season.

Should Spinx replace misutaaa, Vitality would have:

France Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire
France Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut
Denmark Peter "⁠dupreeh⁠" Rasmussen
Denmark Emil "⁠Magisk⁠" Reif
Israel Lotan "⁠Spinx⁠" Giladi

Denmark Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen (coach)

Bruh it's common knowledge that prize pools are split 1/7 (5 players, 1 coach and the org) Then there's alot of tv money given to the org depending on how far they progress as in any sports. Imagine actually believing that the org doesn't earn money from tournys KEKW

2022-07-18 22:33
bruh what are you even arguing about. approx 15% to the org is still a small percentage. if it was above 25% to the org you could consider it a bigger percentage. the prize money being split even has nothing to do with the percentage, you could say everyone gets equally small percentage as nobody is getting a bigger percentage than others. orgs don't live off of tourney money anyways so it literally doesn't matter.

Not really. In Cologne FaZe won something like 400k. And usually you don’t have only one team winning all big events, so you win one like this + 2 smaller, and then you have some lower placements, so let’s say you win like 1 500 000$, some of this goes to org, and the rest (1 200 000) has to be decided by 6, which is 200 000$ per year from tournaments for one player. And their salaries, 25k$ x 12 = 300k$. Salary definitely isn’t a tiny amount, especially after what ropz said in the Estonian podcast, that the tournament money is only a small bonus compared to their salaries. So either they have much higher salaries than I counted with or they get much lesser percentage from the tournaments.

Dude, orgs usually don't touch prize money. Sounds like the most retarded business model, if an org was dependant of prize money. They serve as an incentive for players to perform.
2022-07-18 21:58
if orgs take small cut lets say 10% (dunno about faze's actual cut) and faze's wins yet this year 1,6m 90% of that is 1,44m that divided by players and coach is 240k. then the salary 20k+/month its already 500k total and then there is still 4 months of the year left after player break
2022-07-18 22:13
ENCE players don't make 20-30K per month bro. Only the big orgs pay that kind of money.

you get jackshit for winning, to monetize esport you need sponsors and to bring sponsors you need exposure which obviously means you need to win enough to be a part of biggest events but winning alone brings no interesting money for the org. g2 or even imperial seem to be monetizing esport pretty well but don't win trophies meanwhile astralis yeeted everyone for ages and never found a way to properly monetize their success.

we all know what Snax can be capable of, before his stint with ENCE he was on a pretty significant downward spiral, though. I'm sure he'd jump at the chance to play with ENCE should Spinx get poached by Vitality, but also I think ENCE would be out of their mind, or desperate for money, to even consider letting him go whilst he's still under contract.
2022-07-18 22:37
they will struggle like hell to replace him
2022-07-18 21:00
As I called a while ago, current lineup already achieved more than was expected. Snappi is the only igl that can improve teams like G2 or Vitality, made has shown that he is a reliable teammate that is willing to do everything for his team and at the same time he is showing good numbers. Which leaves Ence in weird spot of rebuilding team almost from scratch. At this point it just makes sense to sell those that have a market and bring a new generation in.

Missutaaa doesn't play the worst postions. He plays the worst on vitality sure but on vitality both magisk and dupreeh play some shit positions on a few maps so missutaaa maybe support but he isn't as hard a support as perfecto or hell even twistzz has harder roles. And also magisk can give up lurking on the t side to spinx since he wasnt doing to good at it and magisk wasn't a lurker when he was at his best on astralis. This move is like replacing olof with ropz only missutaaa is worse than olof and spinx is worse than ropz.

+1 this would be an interesting fix for this vitality squad. The in game strategy and play style is so conflicting this project doesn't work at the moment. Apex needs to be shuffled on if they want to succeed in CS. Watching Dupree during a game says it all.

Apex is good in full french rosters , but he has proven to be clueless when it comes to international rosters. Correct me if i'm wrong , snappi played most of his carrer as an IGL for international teams and managed to take a budget team to the top 3. I think that if he will have the resources that Vitality can provide he will be able to hit a higher ceiling than he has with ENCE

Snappi has played on an international roster for 2 years (6 months on contact and since jan 2021 on ENCE). Before that it was full Danish all the time. Wouldn't be surprised if Apex needs time to adjust to both English calling and Astralis style of CS, which snappi would have to do as well. My problem with snappi is that it SEEMS to me that he can get a lot done for a smaller roster, but his style is difficult to maintain for a longer period. Maybe with the guidance of zonic it could work out, but it would still be a gamble.

its not that simple...depends on how spinxs contract looks like. he can easily have buy out clause with the exact number and if vitality will be willing to pay it and spinx would want to join there is nothing ence can do to stop this trade(hypothetically ofc). or he could do niko/cold move and just bench himself to force that trade(again, hypothetically)

Adding Spinx would make them an international roster, it would be an experiment right? Blend together two styles of CS to create an entirely new style. Crazy, but possibly exactly what that team needs. Zonic could make it work. Like I said to another reply, this move is a big question mark but it's far from an easy decision for Spinx

No way Spinx players bitch roles in this team, he’d be the 2nd best player. Additionally, you have to consider that performing better at tournaments is also an opportunity, which may be better served by ENCE.

Okay yeah maybe not bitch roles. Still, Vitality have incredible potential rn, picking up Spinx and going international could be exactly the kind of change they need. Still a big question mark but definitely not an easy decision to make for Spinx here
2022-07-18 20:34

Spinx’s English is pretty inconvenient to a team that already has communication trouble, if you listen to ENCE calls. His accent is thick and if they’re struggling communicating with Magisk and Dupreeh, who are completely fluent, then I don’t think Spinx is gonna be great. He’ll shoot well sure, but I only see that as a setback for Vitality’s communication issue, which has clearly been holding back a lot of their potential. If Spinx was perfectly fluent or even had a French accent I might think it could be a good move. #159 has a list of why I think Vitality would be an overall downgrade for Spinx, and I stick by that in saying that the negatives outweigh the positives without a known amount of money added on top. Of course, with small orgs and economics the way they are today, that money could make the move happen, but I don’t see it really improving Vitality and I definitely see it destroying ENCE.
2022-07-18 21:01
They need to move apEX to bitch roles and give someone like Spinx even Dupreeh the star roles
2022-07-19 01:04
Considering ENCE's most recent results, I wouldn't be surprised if Spinx could be bought out. They might have to pay him more, but it's a decent move for him.

The weird thing is that ENCE was good (as in top 4 good) for a couple of months, but since then haven't done much. I like snappi as a guy and IGL, but this seems to happen in a lot of his teams. He gets them to a level where they get noticed, but then people seem to figure them out and they fall off.

Yep but its not to defend Neo, but he announced at the recruitment of shox and Kyojin, it will be the last full french roster and if it doesn't work, they will change to international roster, whatever happens. He just does what he said sadly. It's really a shame that he didn't just try someone else instead of kyojin (AMANEK, Hadji for example), i'm pretty sure with one of both it could worked :/
2022-07-19 13:23
about damn time, even apEX has a better rating than misutaaa and everyone knows apEX individual form is pretty bad too (not to mention his calling). Both are not tier 1 players they have maybe one good match per tournament which is clearly not good enough for an org like Vitality. Magisk and Zywoo are the only ones who deserve their spot these days :(

See any stream on 1pv, there is a clear majority of the community against neo and his vision of the team, same on twitter besides some Vitality ultra. Firepower wont resolve much thing as the team looks lost anyway since the switch to international. Vita got the 3 danes for free, Vitality didnt spend money on transfer since Shox, refused to spend some money on a real prospect instead of kyojin. I’m glad they release misutaa tbh, french cs will continue outside of Vita, just sad that Zywoo is trap in this team for years, but since he doesnt speak up he has to deal with it.

mais ??? zywoo can't win a major with french right now, there are no lineup which can do that atm, and pls stop give T2-T3 player or +27 old player, and no, yes many people don't agree with neo, but a majority is not true, just watch krl, malek viewers etc.. and honestly it's don't even matter, zywoo need people to help him, if you want to keep apex who with star player role have bad stat, you need a really good firepower ( if you want top 1 spot, not top 3-5 like old lineup), look karrigan, 0,91 with good player, old navi with bombl4 with 0,90, when you have 2 or more player with 0,90 rating it's too difficult to reach top 1, Because in the end, neo doesen't want a good team, but a Top 1 team, so we need to go inter to save zywoo

Smaller org getting bought out by the big sharks, tbh I wouldn't be surprised if this leads to a major roster sell-off and re-haul. It's sad but the reality of CS:GO. Kind of like the Flames selling their guys. Vitality -misutaa +Spinx G2 -AleksiB -Jackz +Snappi +Maden You can build around Dycha and Hades or also sell off Dycha, im sure some team would love to get him.

But they also have a Finnish coach who is a much more important piece of the team than either hades or dycha Also they have sponsors that aren't necessarily trying to market in Poland Also a lot of ENCE's fans are still Finnish and the org's identity is still Finnish, all the support staff are Finnish and the headquarters are in Finland. Going full Polish would alienate all the rest of the Finnish and international fans. And i might also add that they just launched an academy team and it appears that all of the players there are... yep, Finnish.

I think that this was also a reason why snappi flipped out recently. They needed better results badly, because great players in smaller organization tend to get bought out by bigger organizations. At some point other teams will try to get maden, too, maybe even G2.

100% downgrade for Spinx What he gains: - good experience from Magisk, Dupreeh, zonic, apex - great teammate in Zywoo and maybe Magisk - (potentially) better trajectory, as Vitality seem to be on the up while ENCE are trending down. If this was a guaranteed trajectory, or if it had been more than a couple events, the this move might make sense, but this is far from clear. This would be the reason ENCE and Spinx ever agree to this move though. What he loses: - good IGL - good team structure - fluid english communication (if this wasn’t an issue, a team with Zywoo and Magisk wouldn’t be as bad as Vitality) - less ideal roles (ENCE somewhat built around Spinx, Vitality definitely won’t be) - good teammates in dycha and Maden - (likely) worse overall performance, ENCE are the 3rd best team this year and have only had a few poor results, while Vitality were abysmal for half the year before finding their footing In terms of stats this year, isn’t Spinx even better than Zywoo? He’s probably a top 5 player this year, I’m not really sure it makes sense for him to get worse roles on a worse team with worse communication and worse results. However, I understand that no matter how bad the move is it may happen anyways because money. This will hurt Spinx’s career and ruin ENCE, so I hope it doesn’t happen.

Great summary, also he's joining a team that has yet to find their groove. They just look so disconnected from eachother when they play... Only bringing firepower with one guy that isn't great at communicating (from ENCE vocals you can't mostly hear all the other guys doing the calls) and Spinx accent is really hard to understand.

I agree. This is definitely not the way to fix Vitality, at least not alone. I think IGL Apex needs to go, whether that means he just stays as a normal player or not. I don’t think he’s a bad leader, I just don’t think he’s shown that he can lead an international lineup. I actually would say Apex coming off IGL is the first move I’d make, and then removing Apex or misutaa is honestly a bit debatable, but I think Vitality need a few changes.
2022-07-18 20:58

I'd personally remove 3 players, but yeah the bare minimum would be 2. I don't believe in international roster, FaZe being the exception but look how long it took them to reach that level. I should even say how long it took to find the right pieces. 10 years of CSGO to only have one successful international team, even in 1.6 we never had any successful international lineup going on a streak. Either go full french or full danish. This move is just copium from Vitality. The CEO is so delusional about international lineups, it hurts to see it because he's wasting ZywOo talent.
2022-07-18 21:05

I think ENCE as an international roster is fine, #3 team for the year with a lot of high results, but I’m not sure that international is really the winning formula that G2 and Vitality hoped for. You need a really specific combo of players and I think only karrigan and Snappi have shown they can even approach the top with intl rosters. I honestly am not sure that going full Danish ever makes sense, especially if Device isn’t involved (but maybe Magisk, Dupreeh, Device, Hooxi, Zyphon would be good? Or valde and niko if available) and full French was alright but not significantly different based on last year (are there even enough good French players left?). I understand what u mean tho, I think they kinda half-assed the international lineup thing by keeping half French players and getting half Danish instead of actually taking the best available talent from all over Europe. I feel like Dupreeh, Magisk, and especially Zywoo are just way worse than they would be in different lineups, and maybe international isn’t right for Zywoo if he’s having trouble communicating. Idk what 3rd change I would make, but maybe u have a better idea.

If I was Vitality I would have made the move earlier, getting nicoodoz, roeJ & Snappi. Now I'd go for Zyphon, Snappi/HooXi & valde/dev1ce (they can afford getting him). Make Magisk a star with Zyphon & dev1ce. This would already work better with them communicating in danish. If you're still stubborn to have an international lineup (as their CEO is), then remove everyone except ZywOo & Magisk, even remove zonic. I'd get maLeK or sAw as a coach and then : Adding Spinx, dycha & Snappi. If he's willing to bet on french CS again : bodyy, ZywOo, JACKZ/Djoko, shox, afro/Exercic3/hAdji afro wasn't a primary awper he switched to it out of necessity but he's a really strong rifler. hAdji could be an option too... Or just continue to develop Exercic3 to be that 2nd star.

i think its clear that the internacional vitality isnt working and in my opinion they should go back to full french roster, there are many free agents they could pick up like the players you mentioned and i would add amanek to that mix (not sure if he already join ldlc or not), the only thing that would worried me in the french scene is that they have bad relations between each other but they should figured it out. I think that magisk and dupreeh are really out of place in that team, the bigger problem is that they have a long term contract and thats the only reasson i would see for vitality to not kick them
2022-07-19 14:21
3 replies
AmaNEk is already joining LDLC, he wants to help develop the scene. And if you already have bodyy, shox & ZywOo you don't need AmaNEk. It's great to not have all the experienced guys together. Even Falcons with both NBK & AmaNEk who both are the same kind of player wouldn't be great. But yeah, people are sleeping on the talents there are in the french scene just because there are some old guards that are really hard to get. Of course, if you just pick young talents there is absolutely 0 chance they will go far. But if you activate them with a guy like shox, NBK, AmaNEk, JACKZ, apEX and to some extent kennyS, then it has potential. Diviii, Snobling, Graviti, hAdji, Maka, jeyN, afro, bodyy, Djoko, Python, Lucky, Ex3rcice, Gringo They're on the edge of getting into the tier2 but still are in tier3 because they lack experience & a guy that can mentor them.

Exacly, i think zywoo wont came baack to his prime untill he is on a full french roster, this move will only transform vitality from a flop superteam to a bigger flop. Correct me if im wrong but i dont think that the signing of dupreeh and magisk was even a choice from apex but it was from the org so it was a weird mashup from the begining since the french personalities and the danes were really diferent. I like all the players in vitality just think they are wasting their potencial and for the older player they are wasting the end of their carear but lets see whats going to happen, i hope im wrong
2022-07-20 11:30
1 reply
Yeah it was a move initiated by the org because the CEO wants to transition to international lineup to make it easier for them to get players when they need it. The players were not okay with that move but as it was already done so they basically had to deal with it. There was no tensions though, they accepted it and moved on. On paper they all agreed it was a good move, but they're aware that in game it's not working. apEX said in an interview that everyone underestimates how difficult it is to transition between always having to work in your native language and now everything is in english, to get on the same page, etc... So I get he's also critical of that move, not only to viewers who expected it to work but to the org too. He also said it was a clash of culture, even inside the game, they weren't really playing the same CS. They're all good friends at the moment, they bond very well outside the server... But in game it's still awful to watch.

2022-07-18 20:39
9 replies
-misutaa -Apex +Snappi +Spinx would be a far more interesting move altogether. Then there is some sort of argument that it is an upgrade, since Zywoo>hades and its possibly debatable if dupreeh+Magisk = dycha+Maden, although I’d definitely say dycha and Maden are better so far this year. I would say that move would make Vitality better, but it would destroy ENCE, so honestly it might be even more likely since smaller orgs often like to offload whole teams at once. I don’t know if it would make Vitality better than ENCE is now , though. The English communication with Zywoo might still be an issue, although it seems like Snappi, Magisk, and dupreeh are fluent and Spinx is used to communicating CS in English. I would be excited but apprehensive about that move, and a little sad for ENCE. The current move (if it goes through) just fills me with sadness that we’re going to lose 2 teams for one that *might* be better than Vitality was before, and probably won’t be as good as ENCE was.

This move is not about making vitality a better team , but to make them a title contender , and with -misutaa -Apex +Snappi +Spinx They would be an instant top 3 team imo , especially if Zywoo will communicate well with the team.

Well, I think Vitality needs to be a much better team to make them a title contender. I think they might be top 3 depending on Zywoo’s communication, but that’s just them replacing where ENCE was before. I think the idea of Spinx/Zywoo/Magisk as a trio competing with s1mple/electronic/b1t or broky/ropz/Twistzz is cool, but I don’t know for sure if it works out that way based on Zywoo and Magisk’s form this year. I also think they could be top 3 and still not be a title contender at all, like how G2 was during NaVi’s reign last year, or how ENCE has been this year. Realistically idk if I see them taking on FaZe if they keep up this form, and I think NaVi will only get better with time so I think they have even less of a chance there.

They have a much higher ceiling than 2021 G2 or current day ENCE , not to mention that they have more firepower than FaZe and arguably Na'Vi with that lineup , but then again - with this new iteration of vitality it's all about their chemistry and communication that will determine if they're title contenders or just a really good team
2022-07-18 21:10
3 replies
I don’t think they have more firepower than FaZe or NaVi with that lineup, maybe about the same s1mple > ZyWoo > broky (maybe equal when broky is doing super well) b1t = Spinx = Twistzz (current form) electronic > ropz > magisk rain = perfecto > dupreeh (current form) Maybe if dupreeh improves and Zywoo is on form they could be on NaVi/FaZe level. I just think communication would make them way less stable than ENCE, so I guess they could have higher peaks and lower lows, might get them a title or two. But I still personally feel like they’re just kinda replacing ENCE and sitting about where ENCE/C9 are right now, better than the rest but can’t hang with the best

ropz is better than electronic more often than not firepowerwise, but you could argue for =.. But yeah imo NaVi has the most firepower, mainly because sdy is a really competent fragger, who can star maps on occasion, and it will only get better. apEX and karrigan on the other hand...

2022-07-19 12:38
Yeah, that makes sense... misutaaa was a great talent on the old Vitality but never bloomed since going international. Spinx is a great pickup if they can manage it.
2022-07-18 20:33
I don’t feel this lineup change. At all. I think it will make ence obviously worse but vitality isn’t guaranteed to play better. Spinx would need a lot of space to perform like he does in ence right now.

I think this is pretty stupid if that's team's decision and not his. Because he plays shit roles and ofc his stats dropped, meanwhile apex plays all star roles and has his rating inflated to .9 I do not think misutaaaa is the next zywoo but I think he has potential to be very solid, unlike apex who has hit his ceiling 4+ years ago and keeps playing exactly the same and costing Vitality many MANY rounds. Player playing star roles with .9 rating means they play 4v5. .9 rating in star roles is not the same as .9 rating in shit roles - it's worse, much MUCH worse.

Apex is NOT a star player, I've never said that, yet he plays all star player positions. Star player positions INFLATE his stats - he's actually worse than 0.9. Let that sink in. He plays star positions and star player roles but he's not a star player, I hope we can clear that out. Star player position means he has high amount of possible duels and high responsibilities, there's no players with 0.9 rating playing those spots - only star players. Who is outside on Nuke on NaVi? Electronic, top 3 rifler ever since he started playing. On Ence it's Dycha, top tier rifler and one of 3 stars of the team. On G2 it's Niko, dare I say any arguments on why Niko is there? DO you need any other teams? And even if you don't call those "star positions" issue is teams use their best players in those positions because those positions matter. Apex has nothing on any of the players I've mentioned above, fair 1v1 duel he may win 1 out 5 vs them - but they are all orders of magnitude smarter players and far more mechanically sound. And it's not a one spot, it's almost on every map, apex plays most important positions despite being in contention for the worst player in top 30 teams. That's costing you wins. You don't win like that, not in CSGO, not in any other game, or even team sports. Best player take important high pressure positions - recipe to win for ANY competition. Show me one team in ANY sport where worst player in entire tournament played most important positions and they've won. I give you 50+ years or history of ANY sport. Cause I know there's none, possible in like tier 5 competition because of some random carry but not on top tier.

1. These roles dont inflate your stats. He takes a large amount of early duels, agreed. If he loses those duels he dies early without doing much damage. His stats arent inflated at all, if you play bad in a spot such as connector it doesnt change much, if anything he dies more than a supportive player playing B because theres way less contention for that area of the map. 2. Who is better suited to play these positions. Zywoo has all the relevant oping positions. Dupreeh and Magisk play sites together for communication purposes. And Misutaa just isnt a tier 1 level player, sorry. 3. Youre completely ignoring T side where he takes very sacrificial roles both entrying some rounds and setting up teammates with nades on others. 4. You keep going back to Nuke but actually Magisk has been the one doing aggressive outside plays when they want full control along with Zywoos help and Apex will play lower site.

1. Stats are inflated by simply having more opportunities to do things that are relevant for rating. Rating formula is flawed and apex is in best spots to farm those stats. If he wasn't there he'd be like 0.8 2. Anyone is better suited since apex is the worst player out of all top 100 teams to play those positions. By far, no one has 0.9 constant rating in such positions. Again, pointing out, better the player in those positions, better the win chances. Worst player there means automating 4v5 in like half of the rounds if not more. And no one wins much of those. 3) T side inferno would be a good example would it? Controlling banana which is one of 2 most important positions in the game alongside arch, arguably more important. 4) there are other maps as well, he plays rotators and he plays most engaging positions which NO OTHER TEAM HAS that their worst player BY FAR plays that. Cause that's automating 4v5 and it shows. Also, misutaa is not that bad as people claim him to be, he got some shit roles since the change but before that he has shown promising signs of progression. Unlike apex who hasn't changed anything in past 4+ years.

Reason for it is that many just train how to aim and with majority doing that then it becomes a social pressure to do it. Tactical aspect of the game does not matter on low levels so most people do not understand it and timings. CSGO does not do well to promote tactical aspect. That's why. But Vitality has Magisk to IGL and he calls most rounds anyway.....
2022-07-20 13:59
The position is completely irrelevant to the stats. If its a highly contested spot and you die early without getting any damage or kills it actually negatively affects your rating more because you die far more. The fact that you call T side inferno a star player position, a role where you take heaps of utility and have to sacrifice your life proves you have no understanding of basic CS fundamentals. Lying about the roles he plays and the importance they have does nothing to fix the teams issues, i dont know why you insist on pressing these blatant falsehoods. Just hater delusion i guess

Position is very much relevant to the stats, if you ignore that then we're not on the same level. Just those people looking at plopski stats going down and saying he sucks while he moved from a star to a support role and positions. Clueless bots. apex is the team's issue, he vents out on his team mates during the match, he throws important positions which you refuse to call important because you know so much about CSGO and B anchor is as important as connector player and that's why everyone's best players are in connector apart from one team. To prove your point that I am a delusional hater I offered a simple solution - find me ONE team where by far their worst player and one of 5 worst players on almost every event they play - plays most important positions and they win. Any sport, take football and attacking midfielder/striker/second striker, take playmakers in basketball, any fucking team sport and find ONE team that wins with worst player. You do not seem to understand that playing like that is not a recipe to win. But again, show me one case of a winning team with the worst player of the tournament being in key spots. Weirdly, when worst player plays key spots you loose those key spots and they are called key spots because they are a key to winning. But it's you to ignore it, I guess the flag and overwhelmingly strong French ego does not allow you to accept any criticism but I am willing to bet that Vitality will not win anything until they put a competent player in those positions.

Yeah you just dont understand basic CS concepts. If hes first contact and dies early and this is a highly contested positon hes going to have MORE deaths and a lower rating due to that. Apex does have issues hes emotional and aggressive to a fault quite often but lying about the positions he plays doesnt serve and purpose to fix those issues. "Weirdly, when worst player plays key spots you loose those key spots and they are called key spots because they are a key to winning." You named 1 map where he plays a "key spot" and in the context of vitality it makes sense. Banana is not an uncommon spot for non star players to take. Supportive players contest for banana on many different teams

for me it seems that you understand base understanding of team play, not just in CS but all over the place, classic example of a clueless bot to me. Whoever has shit players in banana inferno losses, I do not need to list you all positions apex plays - he mostly plays very important positions and is by far the worst player who does that. Reason other players contest banana is spawns (another thing you do nto seem to understand about cs), but usually it's best players like Yekindar, Niko etc - cause you need to win those spots more than you loose them in order to have a favorable round in front of you. Again, name me one team in history of sports who won stuff by having worst player in key positions. You struggle with that but you don't struggle to say apex is good enough which contradicts quite a bit. Also you justify apex being the worst player in those positions cause they are contested, like, maybe better player would win more? Cause all of them do win you more, highly contested means high skill ceiling for a position and putting lowest skill player there is a disaster. But I'm talking to a wall, Vitality cannot win 4v5 and they will keep playing 4v5 as long as apex plays those positions. It's easy to tilt him, spend 5 rounds throwing 10 flashes in his face and he's out and you are playing 5v4 the rest of the match. And any good team will capitalize on it. No one can make up for that, not even if you put zywoo, s1mple, niko and electronic in there to play 4v5 almost every round. You just can't win many of 4v5's and vitality plays a lot of those thanks to apex playing positions he's not capable of keeping up with. But I'm talking to an NPC who does not understand what it means to play to create conditions to win. Yolo into 5 angles at once is not that. Worst player playing important spots - not that. 4v5 half of the rounds without a chance to trade - not that. If Niko is in connector and Hunter is short - you can't send apex to contest that. Has to be a better player. Otherwise you loose which they do, unsurprisingly cause then they play 4v5 without a chance to trade for either of those nor did they win any control over it.

I understand the game way better than you ever will because you look at things in a vacuum, you dont consider info or positioning or strategy, just raw 1v1 duels. Thats not what CS is. Apex isnt a shit player and he doesnt have shit aim, he can win duels and he does his KPR for an IGL is among the highest, he just dies a lot afterwards due to overaggression. Him taking a duel in connector isnt an automatic 4v5 like your comments suggest and there are elements of teamplay that can recover lost duels, i.e double peeking and out rotating. Something you again fail to consider that he is in charge of which, along with the communication tactics of the team (having 2 danes and 3 french players) is why he plays a lot of these positions you consider "vital". Him taking these positions and getting info and creates space for Zywoo and Magisk. You also keep acting like Misutaa isnt a problem on the team but he clearly is, he has better positions now at least on T side with both Apex and Dupreeh entrying and doesnt clutch up nearly as much as he should. Misutaa clearly isnt comfortable in star roles and Dupreeh and Magisk play the same way they always have. What else is Apex supposed to do? Just force everyone into positons they feel less comfortable in? Again you keep spamming about 4v5s like apex has never gotten an opening kill or created space but thats simply not true. You only look at his mistakes and no hes not the best entry or the best IGL currently but hes competent and impactful for Vitality. You need to look at the game holistically, stop acting like its just a series of 1v1s that determines round outcomes, thats a clear sign you fundamentally dont understand CS especially at a high level.

Apex is not toxic towards his team, hes a motivator. Not once have any of his current or past teammates said they disliked having him on the team and that happens very frequently in esports, with a player as passionate as him it definitely would have come up. Again you act like you have more information about the team than the players do themselves. Do you have any examples of players saying it was hard to work with apex, or that he struggles individually ? Of course not. Oh what did you call that? Being a slave to your opinion. Having an opinion that you cannot back in any relevant way.

B on Dust 2, clearly a supportive position, B rotator on Inferno, 2nd B player on Overpass. Need i go on?

He plays the same CT positions as NiKo or electronic (and other star players) while having half their firepower.

+1 how are people so delusional, i have the feeling most people dont watch the games not only is he playing better positions on ct, has more freedom on t than misutaa, he also does so many mistakes like noone else. him costing vitality that nuke for the playoffs vs moviestar just the latest example, there are so many maps where he literally costing them the game completely on his own, its unbelievable

yeah on nuke outside apex is peeking 5+ angles at the time for maximum chance to leave his team in a 4v5. initially I thought, oh, okay, he had a bad read or something, but he fucking kept playing like a silver bot swinging and getting rekt. I do not understand what's the plan to win if you have by far the worst player in the team playing most important positions on the map. I'm not a pro IGL but that's not how I'd try to win. Misuta has shown some great stuff before he got rekt and thrown behind everyone, even had full on tournaments where he shines. Guy has a future unlike apex, I just can't fucking understand this. Tho spinx plays those agro roles that apex plays, not 1-1 but if apex is sent back to shit roles he deserves then maybe they have a chance, still, unless misutaaa asked to be about cause he does not want to do those bitch roles - this is one of the dumbest moves.

"Misuta has shown some great stuff before he got rekt and thrown behind everyone, even had full on tournaments where he shines. Guy has a future unlike apex, I just can't fucking understand this." +1111 especially on a map like vertigo, the only map where he gets some space, hes doing alot better and often times has alot of great impact. that they are not even trying it out to give misutaaa the space, like at least on mirage just shows that apex ego is inflated like crazy "Tho spinx plays those agro roles that apex plays, not 1-1 but if apex is sent back to shit roles he deserves then maybe they have a chance, " yes, but even if apex for some unknown stupid reasons, still gets to play those spots, he is for sure the next one to go, when it isnt working out, so at least something positive
2022-07-19 00:35
Yeah, at least in the past he used to be skilled but now he can't even aim. His " IGLing " has been abysmal since he hasn't xtqqqz to tell him what to do, and don't even get me started on his brain. He has the worst game IQ/decision making I've ever seen in t1 CS. I don't even know how it is possible to have so many hours on CS and still make so many mistakes/braindead plays...

2022-07-19 12:57
I agree. When they had rpk he was looking very good. His raw skill is on a very high level, all he needs is more experience. I dont think magisk is a worse igl than apex. I dont know how zonic can allow them to lose another talent. They really f*cked up with Nivera, now misuta. Vitality is a joke tbh, very sad for zywoo, he is just wasting his prime like kenny in mystik. Spinx is a good player, its not a bad move, but misuta is not the one, who has to go.

Misutaaa did so much better when he had more space, even had whole tournaments where he performed as a star rifler. Shox praised Misuta's calls and understanding that Shox is one of the best mid round callers - that's a huge thing to say. As you said and I fully agree, misuta with more experience can be a solid player in any team. Maybe he did not like these roles in Vitality and decided he wants to go, we don't know much from the inside really. apex is a low skill player who has everything thanks to their ego. That's nothing new, in every sport you have those players that are not that good but go far just because their ego gives them extra confidence. But I don't see why keep him, listening to vitality's comms videos, Magisk is calling most of the stuff anyway and is WAAAAAAY quicker to react to info than apex is.

Early videos with this team really have no secret strats as they don't even have strats. They also show decisions, gathering info and players who react to it. apex is choking on comms af, "AEEEEEEEEEE in window, window" just talking useless stuff, repeating what others say and using those AEEEEEEEEEEE when trying to think of the word - preventing others from communicating efficiently and even possibly hearing in game stuff cause apex is a loud dude.

i mean apex knows that comms are issues and they are working on it, not only apex has these problems zywoo also and the danes too. Sometimes also the gameplan is just split apart because danes likes different approach and different french thats why acquiring the 5th none of these nationalities might be a way to solve it.

yes, -apex +anyone would solve a lot of issues, mainly the one where apex plays high skill positions and has 0.9 rating meaning that Vitality often plays 4v5 and without any control of important positions. It's kinda easy to wonder how in hell they can win anything when every round is seemingly an uphill battle when you can't rely on holding one important position on the map. It's a huge handicap.

Apex literally wants to play dogshit pos, but no one else wanted to play these star roles in vita. Zywoo was meant to Play con on mirage and nuke outside but it seems he feels uncomfotable, the only time i remember him playing was one way smoke con or outside when Apex wanted to push. Spinx will be probably getting star roles and Apex will go to support roles which is not bad thing and no -apex might kill team entirely atm. Judging by reality if the transfer goes through Apex will be anchor on ramp and spinx will Play outside nuke, spinx will Play a con and Apex will Play B with dupreeh

Vitality wants trophies here and now, otherwise there was no point in signing dupreeh and magisk.

Makes sense to me. Misutaa paycheck stealing for too long - incredibly inconsistent. Vitality need a passive player and Spinx is the best they could get right now. And for Spinx he'll get the money he deserves for his skill. Vitality will now have a much higher peak, maybe even win a tournament, but will still be limited by Apex. He'll be the final piece to be replaced in 6months to a year.

Of course, but you still can't have as much of a drop off as misutaa. He also isn't a hardcore always in first like a JaCkz for example - you have Apex and dupreeh who are both entry at times. Misutaa has been touted as a potential second star for a long time and he's only gotten worse. He hasn't stepped up to the top level.

L Move
2022-07-18 23:57
If this move is to happen I think it would be amazing for Vitality! The team is really struggling with the opening frags as they are completely reliant on ZyWoo for the first frags. Spinx is one of the best entry players in the world right now and he would be a huge boost to the team as well as he does have valuable experience playing in an international roster. Still, it would mark the end of a French core and as a fan this would make me very sad. But I believe it is something that must be done if Vitality want to get the results and win. But again if I have to be honest, ENCE are not going to release Spinx. If it were to happen, it would have to come at a very hefty price tag to buy the Israeli rifler. Also is Spinx really going to depart his own team ever after the deep runs and results they have achieved this season? I find it very unlikely that Spinx would want to join at his own volition because you never know, ENCE might just start dominating the next season. Vitality better be prepared.

For everyone that says “go french” yes its good but there aren't many good french players that would fit in tier 1 scene, even if they sign hadji, bodyy or whoever, it would end up the same as for example with apex/misutaaa, they wouldn't handle the t1 scene, so spinx is an ideal choice that could definitely help

They were top3 with bot kyojin. They just had to take a 1.05 rated player and they would have been fine.

It's good time for Ence to sell him. His value is inflated by tournaments from a couple months ago, yet hasn't decreased that much, considering his recent drop-off. His peak was around 2-3 months, so Ence can moderate the price up, but considering the short span in which he played very well it is a risk for Vita (although even if he plays half that good he's still better than misutaaa). Seeing Ence play with snax and do well gave ence the idea that with the system they created they can slot in any decent player in that spot and make it work. As for Vita, considering who's around to be picked up, it is probably the best option. I'm sure they went to yekindar and other somewhat-free agents and this was the best outcome for them.

Terrible choice. They should be going with an all-French roster, not making it even more international

ENCE cant sustain themselves for a long time to begin with. They are a small org compared to these other big sharks and when the time comes, the only thing that can stop these bigger orgs from poaching ENCE players is if the players themselves refuse to move to other teams.
